    The Bergensbana connects Oslo and Bergen, the two biggest cities in Norway. Since the entire line is too long I chose the section between Bergen and Voss for this suggestion. The route mostly travels along rivers, fjords and the fjell and features some pretty amazing landscape. Due to a low average speed and only a single track, a journey from Bergen to Voss takes around an hour.

    Quick Facts:

    Length: 85,9km
    Max. Speed: 160km/h
    Signaling System: Norweigan Light Signals
    Safety System: FATC | DATC (EBICAB 700)

    This would be awesome - Norwegian routes are easily in my top 5 in terms of scenery, plus I have a soft spot for the country itself.

    And then you also have beauties like:

    It's not the biggest deal - but for this route they really should update their sky system and let us see northern lights!!

    This looks like an amazing route. I'd probably instantly buy this when it's available. :)

    I've always really liked the peculiar look of the EL 16 and EL 17, and I would really love to see them. The type 73-A also looks quite unique, and I'd like to see that one in game too.

    Combine the interesting locos and EMUs with great scenery, and you've got a great route! Nice suggestion!
